Candido Aragonez de Faria(1849-1911)
Grand Championnat wrestling poster. Research has turned up nothing regarding this Faria poster. I think this sort of poster was printed in advance and travelled ahead of the show, where local printers would add time , date and location information.
Charles Lapicque (1898-1988)
In 1968, The Olympic Organizing Committee decided to produce a series of artistic posters to “represent the intertwining of sports and art worldwide.” A series of 24 sport posters and 29 Art posters were developed. This one by French artist Charles Lapicque.

Le Pole Nord
Albert Guillaume (1873-1942)
French painter. I’m guessing the title means “The North Pole”. Guillaume is considered a master from “La Belle Epoque” period. Contemporaries include…Jules Cheret, Toulouse Lautrec and Alphonse Mucha.
